Queen Elizabeth II is in Canada for a Royal Visit. Today she toured the Canadian navy in Halifax Harbor and looking strong, capable and dressed in one of her famous ensembles with matching hat. I am really amazed how well she is and what a trouper at 84. I couldn't keep up with her schedule with her diligence and I am decades younger. You go girl!!! She amazes me and I give her my respect.
It was raining yesterday and threatening for today, but being a Brit...she's used to that! You can see more about the visit on The Royal Channel on YouTube. I have a link here under my favorite links , or use this clickable link to the site:

Just wanted to let everyone know that since the nice weather seems REALLY to be here in Western Washington, I decided to celebrate with a 15% off everything at Time Was Antiques including including sale items. The coupon code is JULY4TH and can be reused. You can also combine with our FREESHIP for free shipping in the USA for orders over $100.00 WooHoo!!!
We have been having a great time adding new items. Not only from our last buying trip, but have promised ourselves to finally get the warehouse back area cleared out a bit. When we closed our bricks & mortar antiques shop, a lot of items came right off the shelves, were packed and ended up in storage. We moved about 3 months later, and the boxes went into the van and then to the back of the warehouse where they have languished since 2003. Soo...a project indeed. We'd just returned from an English buying trip 6 months before we moved and the stock we bought there had been received, repacked and added to the storage accumulation.So this is really like Christmas because other than knowing the items were there because of the inventory, it's amazing how you forget and how exciting when you open the box.
We have lots of great items and I am diligently adding daily, so keep checking out our new items link at Time Was Antiques.

I have a thing (one of several) for art deco design and this is so cool!!! This is a vintage Evans Case Company, USA silver mesh bottom compact made in the 1930s. The lid is engine turned silver plate with black enamel inserts which is SOO art deco. The compact is all intact including powder & puff. How cool is that! I can just see the elegant lady taking this out to powder her nose & check her bobbed hair and cupid's bow lipstick.
The compact can be seen including inside photos at Time Was Antiques Evans silver mesh compact

I have posted the photo of a neat butter pat I just found at a local estate sale that I love. The pattern is called Daisy and Button and the butter pat was made by L. G. Wright and is technically a Depression Glass pattern. The butter pat is a lovely amber color and in excellent condition. Butter pats make great teabag holders, sauce dishes and ring holders by the sink when you are cleaning or otherwise need to take off your rings. Cool!
For more info, go to Daisy And Button Butter Pat
